I hate when this happens....

2004-10-09 8:18 p.m.

I'm in Peoria right now on Katie's computer. I took advantage of my long weekend and went down there to visit her and her boyfriend, Ryan. Hey, I work at Jewish daycare center in Milwaukee now, did you know that? Probably not, since I haven't updated my diary in months and months. Yeah, so I work at this daycare center in the Infant/Toddler room. The job is okay...it's not exactly what I want to do for the rest of my life (or even for the the next year), but the kids are cool, it pays the bills and I get paid Jewish holidays off, which is why I am down in Peoria right now.

So, without really wasting any time updating on everything that has been going on since March, or whenever I last updated, I am jusr going to start with what happened last night. Katie and Ryan really wanted to set me up with this guy Jason, who had just recently broken up with his girlfriend. I think Katie and Ryan were just joking, but I think that they were kind of half-serious too. They kept saying how him and I are perfect for each other, how nice he is, how good he is to his girlfriend's and blah, blah, blah. Now, being put under a microscope like this, I felt rather uncomfortable meeting him yesterday (Katie and I had met up with Ryan and Jason to pick up Ryan's car from getting fixed). I was thinking the whole time, what has Katie and/or Ryan said about me to Jason?

The four of us went to grab some food and then we spilt up, because we all had to get ready to go out drinking later. I admit, I put a little extra effort into looking cute for several reasons:

A. I wanted to impress him. At this point in time, I wasn't even sure if I was even attracted to him or not, but that didn't mean that he couldn't be attracted to me.

B. When he met me, I was totally scrubbing out-I hadn't showered or put make-up on. I probably looked as bad as I possibly could. So, I had to make up for it.

Okay, on with the story...
We all meet up at the bar and Jason was talking to me and flirting and whatnot. And as the evening went on, and the alcohol started loosening up my sense of caring what people think about me, body parts began touching and we began talking more exclusively and I was leaning in really close to hear what he was saying. And I was really starting to like him a little. It was actually pretty entertaining-I could see out of the corner of my eye, Katie and Ryan watching us and when I turned to look at them they just looked so excited. And Ryan mouthed something like, "he likes you" or something like that.

It got really weird after that though. Out of nowhere, I saw him attempting to talk to some girl, who was totally trying to brush him off or he would disappear to the pool table for long periods of time. I didn't really care, I just thought that it was weird considering that inbetween this, I would catch him looking at me when I was on the dance floor or flirting with me.

There was really no resolution to anything because Katie and I left fairly quickly. Ryan got kicked out and was throwing a scene outside the club and Katie wasn't going to stand around and watch it, so we left. And that was that.

This morning I told Katie that I kind of liked him and that she and Ryan were good matchmakers. And she was like, yeah, he was definitely interested. However, being that we live four hours apart, nothing will happen. He was really sweet though.

Damnit.
